997 Turbo vs 997GT3 (German)

I'd choose the GT3!

Leicht muss es sein, vorwärts muss es gehen.

They were saying: At the end, buy a 3 series


So 1 GT3=Robin Hood
1 Turbo=BMW320i

Eventhough, the Turbo is faster in a straight line, I believe these two cars produce similar lap times around the Nurburgring. This sounds like another 335 vs M3 debate!

GT3 for me.

GT3 - handles better engine is sinnfull steering is ultra razor sharp. They do have a point about the tires though - I woul swap the GT3's tires for something with better wet performance.

Thanks for the post.

I would take the turbo (more civilized and AWD).

Motorweek just did a test.

0-60 in 3.9 sec.

1/4 mile in 12.2 sec. @ 120mph.

$125,000 base ($8,500 optional ceramic brakes).

Topped out at about $150,000 loaded.

And the rear wing deploys at 75 mph.

GT3 does have a better engine noise, and will be a much better track car, but I think I will take the turbo instead...
